Nothing makes me happier than to be around animals. I spend my days nursing animals, educating clients, and working with an incredible team to bring the best possible care to every animal that walks through our doors. Every day brings new challenges and I strive to do my best to make your pets visit as comfortable and as enjoyable as possible.
I have a great passion for animal medicine and enjoy working side by side with the doctors to help animals in need feel better and to stay healthy. I have 3 cats and 2 dogs. When I'm not working I'm with my daughter and furry kids. I enjoy spending my spare time with family and friends preferably outdoors.
Growing up I always had a love for animals and my mother would always buy me national geographic videos. My love for animals grew with the vast variety of animals in my home so when it was time to decide what I wanted to do with my life, I chose the veterinary field. love being able to help animals because they aren't able to help themselves and at the end of the day that is what makes what I do special.
Some of my values in life are integrity, compassion for others and maintaining a positive attitude all the time. My beliefs and values lead me to a role in the veterinary field. I want to perform and be as incredible as my pets "think" I am. Mastering my skills as a technician and eventually a Veterinarian will allow me to provide top quality care for those in need.
I have loved the idea of helping and making animals feel better since I was 12. Coming to work each and everyday let’s me know I am making a difference, Being able to do what I love for work is an added bonus. I have two cockapoo’s of my own who love coming to work with me
As long as I can remember I’ve been an animal lover. I was always interested in the medical field and have found that I’m much more passionate about animals. Everyday I come to work I feel so blessed to be doing what I do. I love helping animals every day; they keep me staying positive and happy. I also love all of my coworkers at VCA Imperial Point; they’re my family, my home away from home.

I have always loved animals and I have always loved medicine, so working in a setting where I am able to practice both together is a dream come true. I am currently a student studying biology in the hopes of one day becoming a veterinarian.
